I have a Fabspeed dual muffler. I just capped that line off.

I don't hear my wastegate opening, rather I hear the exhaust being dumped as a result of the wastegate open. If yours was stuck closed, you would overboost and your engine would shut fuel flow (at 1.3 bar, I think). If your was stuck open, you wouldn't be able to build boost.
